U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) recently completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. Nadler, a 28-year incumbent and Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is running for re-election in New York’s 10th Congressional District. He joins Lindsey Boylan and Jonathan Herzog, the two other candidates in the race, in completing a Candidate Connection Survey.
Ballotpedia asks all federal, state, and local candidates to complete a survey so voters can discover what motivates them on political and personal levels.
One question in the survey asks candidates to list three key messages of their campaigns. Each candidate listed three topics, shown below:
- “Strengthen Democracy & Rule of Law”
- “Reduce Economic Inequality”
- “Fight Climate Change”
- “Climate Change”
- “Mental Health”
- “Protecting our Democracy”
- “Universal Basic Income”
- “Universal Healthcare”
- “Publicly Financed Elections”
In 2018, 1,957 candidates completed a Candidate Connection survey. This number represents 6.9% of all 28,315 candidates Ballotpedia covered during that cycle. Out of the 1,957 respondents, 477 (24.4%) won their elections.
